dog does make a difference

I am very lucky that my lab loves to fish. When trolling, he knows to go to the bow and watch until fish is coolered. When drifting, he actually watches one of the poles and whines if he thinks it has a bite. I bird hunt with him and we also get squirrels.

Fishing vs Hunting

I love both and look forward to the time outdoors that both present. However, there is nothing that I enjoy more then watching my dogs, whether its from the goose pit or working pheasants and grouse. The ability to enjoy both for the majority of the year is what made me decide to move to central SD.

I am sure that is because I could be dedicated to it.

Long story short ... I chose fishing over hunting.
I can put a fish back ... I can't put anything back when I hunt.

I do still harrass the deer in my yard with paint balls while they eat my landscaping .... ( oops!! Did I say that out loud? )

Wow. What a great idea. I'm off to buy me a paintball gun.

Suzuki Actually everytime I have tried a combo trip I end up not fishing. Drug my boat to northern Minn once. It ended up just being a glorified trailer. Once I see a grouse its over. All I want to do is hunt.

Explorer Don't get me wrong here, I really enjoy fishing. In fact I do more of that now then Hunting.
When someone just states Fishing rules that makes it hard for me to beleive they have ever Bowhunted Big Game.
Fishing has never quite given me the same excitement as BowHunting Big Game has. Not even the 13 pound Walleye we put in the net.

Fishing. No question. I can be extremely scuessful catching multiple trophies on any given day and nothing has to die.

I used to be a hard core hunter even hunting internationally. Killing for heads/horns ruined hunting for me. We did take the meat or make sure the locals got it. Now i still hunt but i am extremely selective and rarely harvest an animal. I now rate success by how close i can stalk. I figure getting within bow range means i have been successful even if i don't take the animals life.

Another huge plus for me and fishing is fewer pissing matches for the hot spot and nowbody owns the spots and cannot post them. Everybody has the same chance at the same fish no matter how many thousands they have spent on gear.

Nothing ruins a hunting trip faster than some d*ckhead setting decoys on top of your set and then sky busting. Or setting their deer stand within 100 yards.

Lastly i can fish 365 days of the year. Hunting has seasons and time limitations.
